For Sale – Aaron’s Kona Honky Tonk…

18 12 2011

Aaron's sweet Kona Honky Tonk...

My buddy Aaron is selling his lovely Kona Honky Tonk road bike. It’s a sweet ride, but he’s been seduced by the lure of the 650B wheel size and by the tempting plumpness of the Pugsley’s 4″ rubber. His GF is a reasonable lady, but she won’t let him bring any new rides into their apartment unless something leaves first.

Hello Vik,

I have no idea where to post this, or how to contact you, but I have a SuperNova E3 Iris that I am looking to trade for a Schmitt eDelux. The light works great, but is too bright for commuting, and more at home on trails or dark country roads. I should have listened to your blog advice and gotten a commuter light which has less ‘dazzle’ and more light on the road. Any way. The light has about 1300 km on it, but is just too bright for in-the-city riding for oncoming traffic. If you could help point me in the right direction for trading, it would be greatly appreciated.

Sorry for posting this here…

Michel – no problem about posting your comment here…I don’t know where to point you at to trade that light. It would be most useful to night time mountain bikers [not that they are too many of those], but last time I checked they preferred battery powered systems and it would be unlikely they’d have an Edelux to trade.

“His GF is a reasonable lady, but she won’t let him bring any new rides into their apartment unless something leaves first.”

Doesn’t sound at all reasonable to me!

I agree with you mostly. If you’d have seen the number of bikes I’ve been going through in the past years then you’d understand. I’m told that I have a problem but I don’t see it. Haha

I’d like to buy these. Who do I contact

Building my bike similar as yours, its good that you’ve posted the parts here just exactly what I need. Thank you! But why retiring the bike though?

Aaron wants a Surly Pugsley and is trying to keep total bike #’s within a reasonable limit.

@Tim – I’m going to email you with Aaron’s contact info right now.
